Project Safe Neighborhoods: STAMFORD CRACK DEALER SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON
David B. Fein, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, announced that MARC MOMPOINT, 37, of Stamford and Bridgeport, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Robert N. Chatigny in Hartford to 60 months of imprisonment, followed by five years of supervised release. On June 1, 2009, MOMPOINT pleaded guilty to one count of possession with intent to distribute five grams or more of cocaine base (“crack cocaine”).
According to court documents and statements made in court, on two occasions in July 2008, MOMPOINT possessed a total of approximately 37 grams of crack cocaine that he intended to distribute to others.
This case was prosecuted as part of a joint law enforcement operation conducted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) and the Stamford Police Department’s Vice and Narcotics Squad pursuant to the Project Safe Neighborhoods initiative. This matter was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert M. Spector.
The Project Safe Neighborhoods Initiative is aimed at reducing gun and gang violence, deterring illegal possession of guns, and improving the safety of residents of Connecticut’s cities. Participants in the initiative include community members and organizations as well as federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
